Although not strictly a Christmas song
this section would not be complete without the inclusion of the lyrics of Auld
Lang Syne. The song Auld Lang Syne is traditionally sung by most of us on the
stroke of midnight each New Years Eve however in Scotland, where Auld Lang Syne
originates it is also sung on Burns Night, January 25th, to celebrate the life
of the author and famous poet Robert Burns. The words ‘Auld Lang Syne’
literally translates from old Scottish dialect meaning ‘Old Long Ago’ and is
about love and friendship in times past. The Auld Lang Syne lyrics referring to
‘We’ll take a Cup of Kindness yet’ relate to a drink shared by men and women to
symbolise friendship. The ‘Auld Lang Syne’ lyrics and words were first
published in 1787 and the song has now become a  tradition as we celebrate
a Happy New Year!!!!
